I have always been a keen and aggressive SEO campaign addict on the use of social media signal, most especially on the use of Twitter and Google Plus. Why?
It’s simply because social media signals (Twitter and Google+ in particular), if obtained properly produces remarkable Google SERP rankings!! It naturally boosts your chances on ranking high on Google!! Need proof, I will explain
- #1 Case Study
Reginald Chan of reginaldchan.net invested heavily on the use of social media tools, and after a keen and systemic study of his approaches, I came to understand the impact that social media signals are having on his blog’s SERP.
This young man, from Malaysia, ranks comfortably on Google first page for lucrative and money making keywords such as ‘Google AdSense services’ e.t.c.
His blog recently clocked 1year and he shared some detailed insights into his approaches; he has more than 3000 twitter followers, more than 5000 Google + circles e.t.c. On top of this, he is specifically active on the use of twitter to share with influencers and his thousands of followers.
A careful study of the backlinks leading to the URL of the earlier mentioned keyword, shows virtually no bcklinks, and its because Google seems not to appropriate links coming from social media authority sites as backlinks (however, they are).
His approach is this; he makes sure his blog contents are unique, original and thoroughly written. Secondly, he shares the blog post on twitter heavily using buffer and hootsuite..and corresponding result is an explosive growth plus quick ranking on Google first page
- #2 Case Study
I am an SEO consultant with proven results, and I have come to understand the power behind the use of twitter. Links from twitter is extremely important for quick and easy increase in organic traffic due to the following points:
- Twitter is a PR10 website
- Twitter is the most active, and less spammy social media network in this present time
- Using the authority of twitter and the power of influencers ( people with thousands of specific niche followers), your blog posts/website can receive an explosive viral traffic numbering in thousands.
- Imagine receiving an approximate 20-100 PR10 dofollow links on a consistent basis to your blog/ website!!! Think about it.
I have come to realize that if you use twitter efficiently and maximally, you will get lots of organic traffic in exchange
It is not the number of times you share an article, content or blog post on twitter that guarantees result!! But it’s the number of links coming from twitter to that blog posts, content or website that matters. So focus on this and get result!!

As an active blogger, one of the most terrible challenges is coping with times and dealing with direct involvement in the daily running of your blog. In the context of my argument, which is explaining and teaching you on how to get organic traffic for your present and old post? I want to introduce you to a plugin which will simplify and automate your blog post scheduling on twitter. Why? Its because, the professional and successful bloggers, including myself makes use of this tool and its related means!!
It has been proven that Google loves fresh content, and that is why most blogs/websites that publishes content on a consistent basis tends to do fairly well on its rankings. In other words, Google bots crawls such site at a constant rate and this attitude connotes to big G that the site is an authority, serious minded online business.
The objective here is trying to make sure that Google bots constantly visits your old posts; this has multiplier effect on the freshness matrix factor used by Google.
